The University of Puget Sound provides each student free access to the following Microsoft options:

  1. The computer labs available in the academic buildings include Microsoft Office.
  2. The University's virtual desktop, vDesk, provides access to the full Microsoft Office suite as well as other academic software. More information on vDesk is available here.
  3. Microsoft's Student Offers allows students to register for a free Office 365 account using a ".edu" email. As this service is provided by Microsoft, the University cannot guarantee that Microsoft will continue to provide free Office 365 access to students.


Technology Services is unable to provide troubleshooting for Office 365 as the applications are stored and managed on Microsoft's application servers. If you are having issues with Office 365 applications contact Microsoft Support.
